After defeating Rock Bridge High School in a double overtime game, KHS girls’ varsity basketball played at state Saturday March 18. KHS beat Lee’s Summit High School 43-36 in a well-deserved win, Makayla Wallace, junior and point guard, said. “It was amazing,” Wallace said. “It was like a dream come true. It’s the first championship in [KHS] girls’ basketball history.” Although Ashley Anderson, junior and forward, was on the bench, she said that the experience was just as great. “We have impressive talent on our team,” Anderson said. “We focused on our goal of ‘One more’ and pulled away with a win.”KHS took second in state last year to Kickapoo High School in a 53-63 game after beating Francis Howell North High School 66-55 in the final four game. Emily Kreidler, junior and forward, said that this year, the team really deserved the win after last year. “When I received the medal I was in disbelief because we had actually won,” Kreidler said. “It felt great to have that medal on my neck because a year ago we had lost.”
